Anything you create or upload to Pebble+ is called an Asset. Assets include any plans, reflections, presentations and evidence of your learning. Blogs are useful for tracking development over time – e.g. during different stages of a project or even for your own personal reflection on your learning processes.
There are several ways to use a blog:
- As a private reflective space for recording your thoughts and insights (like a journal or diary)
- As a formal record of your experience (at a conference or internship, for example) which is able to be read by an assessor or your peers
- As a record of your readings, resources and thoughts as you progress through your course or a period of professional development – this can be shared with others
- As a discussion space where your peers may be allowed to comment or contribute to entries
